string; character to test

Description

• 

The IsPrintable(char) command determines whether char is printable. Printable characters consist of the alphanumeric characters, punctuation characters, and the space character. (For more information, see IsAlphaNumeric and IsPunctuation.)

  

If char is a printable character, IsPrintable returns true. Otherwise, false is returned.

• 

If char is a string that contains more than one character, then all the characters in the string are tested. The command returns true if the condition is true of all characters in the input string. For the empty string, the tested condition is vacuously true.

Thread Safety

• 

The StringTools[IsPrintable] command is thread-safe as of Maple 15.
